Everyone in the image of God (Phil Sproul)

Phil Sproul shared a message about how everyone is made in the image of God. While we are often confused about the value of people who are different than us, we understand that everyone is loved by God and in need of his salvation.

The best posture for us with Jesus is to:* Come surrendered* Come seeking* Come with a soft heart Connect with us…
